Cuthbert Eats Bob

So I cut open my stomach
With a sharpened spoon
Plug in the video camera
Gaffa tape to seal
Camera primed with a fresh role
Of Beta Max Tape

Press go and watch
My Tape Worm
Bob my enlarged gut

It's so dull, even with the scenes
of sea anemones fucking
spliced in.
So I drop a bomb
To speed up the day

Bob shrunk to nothing
As did my genitalia
My brain
and my circle of friends

Now the reals of film lie scattered
across the unmowed lawn
The odd daffodil focusing
on the slow scene
until the sun goes down
